FUNCTIONAL DIAGNOSTIC NUTRITION (FDN)
In our coaching sessions I use the the FDN approach, which is based on the principles of functional medicine. This model identifies hidden health trends, nutritional deficiencies and imbalances in the body. This holistic approach also takes into account bodily systems including Hormonal, Immune, Digestive, Detoxification, Emotional and Neurological (H.I.D.D.E.N)
Internal imbalances cause stress on the body and create symptoms. These imbalances can be similar or overlap with menopausal symptoms, causing some women to suffer badly in their menopausal years. It is not uncommon for HRT to be seen as the solution. However, this is not always the case as some menopausal symptoms are caused by other issues in the body and when we get to the root cause of these problems, symptoms fall away.
As an FDN Practitioner, I am like a health detective, digging deeper to get to the root cause of your symptoms. Supporting you back to balance, so that you can have the healthiest Early Menopause possible. I have been trained, not to just read, but fully interpret functional lab testing, personalised to you. So you get the help that your body needs. Not that every-body needs.
Internal Stress is not just caused by physical issues it can be emotional too.
I am also fully trained in advanced emotional healing techniques, so we can work through any emotional trauma, grief, lack of purpose, lowered resilience or heightened anxiety, and other issues that can surface in menopause.
I work either through 1-1 coaching or self guided programmes online in the comfort of your own home. You are welcome to book in a free 15 minute chat with me, to see if we are a good fit and how I can support your individual needs.
Starts with an Early Menopause MOT. After all you get your car checked out annually. Why wouldn't you get your body checked out? This is an in-depth 90-minute session all about you.
When was the last time that a health practitioner, focused purely on you for 90 minutes? In this session you will recieve a few questionnaires so we can dig deeper into:
EARLY MENOPAUSE MOT:
+ Adrenal Indicators (Discover how stress and metabolic chaos is affecting the different systems in your body and where your weaknesses are!)
+ Adrenal Causes (What are the key areas in your life you need to get into balance)
+ Thyroid indications (Are you experiencing any thyroid imbalance symtoms)
+ Hormone Indications (What is your hormonal balance looking like in terms of symptoms)
+ Medical History (Is there anything that runs in the family that we need to be aware of, that could give us further clues?)
When I receive all of this information back, you will be invited to book your call. In our 90 mins together I will ask you further questions about your health, about where you are now and where you want to be. This allows me to start to formulate some focus areas and hopefully identify some quick wins.
As a FDN, I am here to guide you to uncover your personal situation and piece it together, enabling me to suggest a path forward, so that you can get back to being you again.
You will leave this session knowing where your weak areas are, what functional tests would be useful for you to run and also what would be the best path forward for you, if you wanted to continue your healing journey.
AFTER YOUR MENOPAUSE MOT:
You can move in to a personalised 1-1 coaching package with me,
I offer two options; a one test package called EM:BODY or if you are needing multiple functional tests a more comprehensive package called EM:BRACE. I will be able to advise you which will be the most suitable.
This package is for you if you just want to do testing and focus on one test initially.
+ 1 x Functional Test Kit (Up to £335) GI Map Stool Test, Organic Acids Test or Dutch Test.

+ 2 x Follow up coaching sessions: Where we will check in and continue our healing journey.
2 x Email check in sessions: These are used to check in how you are doing. Or address any questions you have as we go along.
This package is a more comprehensive package. This is for ladies who need to do multiple tests.

If you are struggling emotionally with Early Menopause, you may benefit from some Emotional Coaching.
Alot of women that I have worked with have shared that they have experienced the following in Early Menopause:
- Grief, anger, loneliness.
- Old memories of trauma arising.
- Feelings of not being able to fully express their emotions of Early Menopause to their partners or family or in general.
- Now knowing how to cope with friends announcing pregnancies.
- Feeling loss of purpose.
- Low energy and other illnesses and feeling low mood.
- Anxiety and overwhelm.
- In Early Menopause friends don't understand as they are not going through menopause yet.
Emotional stress & early childhood trauma can surface around menopause, which has been shown to cause autoimmune disease in adult life. (Early Ovarian Failure is autoimmune in nature).
I find that ladies who work on both the physical and emotional sides of their health have the most success in healing. Often symptoms may appear around the time of another traumatic event. So it is good to heal and clear that from you cellular memories so you don't keep re-living it.
I work with different modalities in these sessions, mainly The Journey by Brandon Bays, EFT, Emotional Matrix, NPA and self kindness along with breathing.
+ 3 x 2 hour coaching sessions
Valid for 2 months, ideally we have one every other week.
Each session is done over Skype or Zoom and you will need to be in a private space during the session for your privacy and so you can relax fully. I work with ladies globally with Early Menopause Emotional Coaching.
